"Amy, have you met Gym?!" ....ahhhh yes - Operation Get-You-Moving has officially begun!
When I booked in for my first ever PT session last week, I had NO idea what to expect... and walking in there at 4pm today, I was still none the wiser! All geared up and nervous as hell (I was pretty sure he was going to leave me unable to walk ever again...hahaha), I made my way to the gym. To say I was a little anxious would be an understatement - the two hours prior, I was a bundle of nerves!!!
To paraphrase Tiffany (the new trainer) from Biggest Loser, my mantra walking into the gym was "I AM A WARRIOR!" - I just love that SO much! Just wish my shakey legs would have caught on a little sooner, as I stumbled up the back steps... please tell me noone saw that?! o.O
So I rock up, and off my PT and I trot into the consultation room.... and for an hour, I get grilled, briefed, educated, planned and praised... but... hang on... where's the workout?!!
OPERATION G-Y-M - Phase One: Strategy!
Ohhhhh..... I seeeeeee! (a little slow on the uptake, me!)
SO, as it turns out, my introduction to the Gym was pretty cruisey!! The only sweating I did for the hour long session was in the form of nervous, sweaty palms!!! BUT I walked out with a wealth of information, a new plan, understanding what the classes meant and how I can make them work in my favour and goals, and even more focus than before!
AND - to cap it all off - was told I'm training at an athlete level already! BIG PRAISE for a girl like me! (I'm pretty sure the smile on my face said everything to my PT at that point - I was just SO chuffed! ME - an athlete?!!!!).
SO for the next six weeks, I now have one Pump class to add to my (already hectic) weekly schedule! After that, we knock it up a notch and I throw in some new methods to see even more results! I think this is just awesome - will work in really well with the timing of my 12WBT challenge - and I really can't wait to see what I can produce after an intense few months!!
Now, the only question that remains is what day do I want to do my Pump class.... ?!!! hmmm...... decisions, decisions!!!
